Must-See Timelapse Video for MNF at U.S. Bank Stadium
The Vikings host their first of many primetime Monday Night Football games at U.S. Bank Stadium tonight as they host the New York Giants.
In seasons past, the Minnesota Vikings would be lucky to even sniff a primetime matchup unless it was against a superior opponent that had made a deep playoff run the previous season(s) and we just so happened to land on their schedule at the right time.
Boy how times have changed.
After winning their first NFC North Divisional crown last year since 2009, the Vikings have been gifted with several games on Sunday or Monday night this season, including two back-to-back Thursday slates - one of those being Thanksgiving.
Having christened their new home already in Week 2 against border rivals Green Bay, the Vikings (3-0) welcome the New York Giants (2-1) into their state-of-the-art purple paradise for a nationally televised game in which they're favored to win.
ESPN went ahead and made a short, but sweet hype-video to go along with the broadcast tonight that shows fans gearing up for the Packers-Vikings game two weeks ago to prove how hungry this fan-base is for a winner.
Watch it now below, and try not to get goosebumps for tonight:
